If you scratch a Dem hard enough…

...out will pop a Commie or a Nazi.

Here are two related stories. The first, from a couple of weeks ago, has a Democratic Congressman calling to limit freedom of speech by legislation and constitutional amendment.

A Democratic representative is calling for an amendment to the United States Constitution that would allow for some legislative restriction of freedom of speech.

“We need a constitutional amendment that would allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations,” Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) was quoted as saying by CNS News.

He reportedly made these comments while speaking at the Annesbrooks HOA candidate Forum held last month.

In a video obtained by the website, Johnson asserts that “corporations control … patterns of thinking.”

“They control the media. They control the messages that you get,” he added. “And these folks … are setting up a scenario where they’re privatizing every aspect of our lives as we know it. So, wake up! Wake up! Let’s look at what’s happening.”

Corporations and unions are protected under the First Amendment of the Constitution because of the ruling in “Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission,” which found that a sate law prohibiting corporations from making political campaign contributions using their treasury funds was unconstitutional.

The ruling additionally stated that the spending was a form of political speech that is protected by the First Amendment, according to the official blog of the Supreme Court of the United States.

“These corporations, along with the people they support, other millionaires who they’re putting into office, are stealing your government,” Johnson was quoted as saying by CNS News. “They’re stealing the government and the U.S. Supreme Court was a big enabler with the Citizens United case.”

The second -- not a surprise to anyone who follows this blog -- has the wonderful Harry Belafonte urging President Obama to imprison his opponents. Yes, you read that right:

Don't worry, though, socialism will never take hold in the United States...

    It's amazing how much mileage Belafonte's gotten out of his angry PC warrior shtick. No wonder he's still at it.

    George,

    These characters are underestimating the power of the Second Amendment...

    Our founding fathers were very wise men. They could see centuries ahead..

    You're spot-on FFC, and it may eventually come to that if these leftist scumbags continue their push to totally destroy this country and enslave us. Hate to sound so severe, but it is looking very scary.
